eyeshadow palette

I haven’t been motivated to write a beauty post in SO long. When that happens I tend to have a little potter around my makeup collection to see if anything sparks a blog post idea.

I’m definitely a regular eye-shadow wearer, for some reason my makeup just seems to look a bit better when I have it on. On the days that I can be bothered to wear makeup, of course.

I’m all about that bit of shimmer on the lids. However saying that, I only use two (of the four or five) palettes I have.

My oldest love is the Smashbox Full Exposure  palette which I’ve had for a few years now and I still love it as much as when I got it. Its my go-to. The colours just work so well together and I think it’s actually super easy to use, I’m in no means a professional. The brush it comes with is what I’ve been using for every eyeshadow look since I got it, it’s such a good one and definitely not one to throw to the side.

The Zoeva Nude Spectrum palette is a bit more of a newer purchase for me, well I say new, I got it at Christmas. I like it just as much as the other, but with this one I tend to just stick to the shimmery shades and I haven’t really used any of the mattes on this one. This palette seems to have a bit more of ‘fall-out’ than the other, but it’s nothing ridiculous.

I know I’m not *super* familiar with all the eyeshadow palettes out there, but these two are my faves and the ones I always gravitate towards.

Whats your favourite eyeshadow palette that I need to pick up next?

  • I definitely need to try Smashbox. My current favourite is the Lorac Pro Palette. I’m such a creature of habit I tend to stick to the same palettes too 🙂

    • Ooh I’ve never tried the Lorac Pro but heard they are incredible! xx

  • I’m not a big shadow user, but I find it helps liner stick having a more matte base if anything!

    • I never use eyeliner anymore, I’m not sure why though! x

  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar is my absolute favourite! But the one I’ve been wanting to try out is the Modern Renaissance 🙂

    • Yes I really want to get the modern renaissance too! It looks so pretty 🙂 x

  • I just love when a palette includes all the colors I really need! xx

  • This Zoeva Spectrum palette looks gorgeous! The perfect everyday shades xx

  • Those shades look gorgeous and so wearable! I’m actually a big fan of some of the cheapest palettes out there – the MUA ones and the Sleek ones 🙂 xxx

    • I’ve never tried either of those! Love finding great drugstore purchases so will definitely be keeping an eye out! x

  • I’m so in love with my new Violet Voss palette at the moment. I’d never had anything of theirs before and they are the best shadows I have ever used! XX

  • My favorite palette would have to be the Naked2. I just love every shade and they’re actually wearable you know.. Loved this post! I’ll check out the smashbox one, I’ve never tried anything from this brand before! 🙂

    • I’ve only tried a few but their primer water is so good too and lasts for so long! x
